Com­plaint against Cong can­di­date for mis­us­ing Bhim Army chief’s name

Hindustan Times (Lucknow) - - Uttarpradesh -

MEERUT: Bhim Army has lodged a com­plaint against Congress can­di­date in civic polls Chaud­hary Inam Shakir at Nakud po­lice sta­tion of Sa­ha­ran­pur for mis­us­ing the name of the or­gan­i­sa­tion’s chief Chan­drashekhar alias Ra­van to woo Dal­its.

Sa­ha­ran­pur SSP Babloo Ku­mar said the po­lice had re­ceived a com­plaint from Bhim Army’s as­sem­bly seat in-charge Ro­hit Raj Gau­tam and it was be­ing ex­am­ined for fur­ther ac­tion. In his com­plaint, Gau­tam said the Congress can­di­date for Amb­heta na­gar pan­chayat chair­man Chaud­hary Inam Shakir mis­used the name of Chan­drashekhar in his pub­lic­ity ma­te­rial to at­tract Dalit vot­ers.

He said Bhim Army was a non­po­lit­i­cal or­gan­i­sa­tion and Chan­drashekhar’s name was used with­out his con­sent. He de­manded le­gal ac­tion against the Congress can­di­date as he had vi­o­lated the model code of con­duct.

Congress leader Im­ran Ma­sood said,“Congress is a party ca­pa­ble of con­test­ing elec­tion on its own and lodg­ing com­plaint against party can­di­date will weaken the move­ment of Bhim Army be­cause we al­ways sup­ported them in their cri­sis.”
